It’s no secret that today’s guest is amazing. Shannon from luvinthemommyhood is one of the sweetest bloggers out there, with mad sewing, knitting and photography skills – her designs always blow me away.
Having designed for Birch Fabrics, Pat Bravo’s Art Gallery, displaying at Quilt Market, and currently in the process of releasing her first book with Jane Richmond called Island, this girl is on fire!
And with two of the cutest little girls around, I couldn’t wait to see what they would design for their Momma to make!
i try as much as i can to get my children involved in the design process when i’m making clothing for them. i ask them questions about fit, style and a lot of the times let them choose their own fabrics. they enjoy it and i find my success rate of them “actually” wearing it a lot higher.
she chose all her fabrics – the girls got some good taste, and i helped her streamline her design. the original drawing had about 6 pockets across the back…lol. a bit too much if you ask me. so we decided on a large bow on the front and some pockets on the back. she drew 2 pockets on her final sketch but i decided to give in to her whimsy and add a 3rd for that extra pocket luv. the fabrics we used were: lining – cotton cream summer gardens, outer flap/pockets – cotton pink pinwheels, strap & bow – cotton pink hopscotch all from “children at play” by sarah jane.
That has got to be the cutest bag ever Shannon! Your daughter chose some amazing fabrics to make it with – I am super impressed. I am happy she finally figured out something that she wanted you to make! Every girl loves a good purse after all :). Thank you again so much for being here and being a part of KIDS.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…
